Hello,

I am wondering if it is possible to obtain growth factor estimates (intercepts and slopes from LGM) separately for each subject in the sample. I would like to save these values in a separate file. How can I do this? I already tried several things with the SAVEDATA-command, without success.

Thanks in advance.
Sylvana

Use the SAVE=FSCORES option of the SAVEDATA command for this. If you continue to have problems, send your files and license number to support@statmodel.com.

This worked, thanks alot! I am getting stars in the first column, and stars preceding some variables, but that isn't a problem. I am surprised that the growth factor scores are full numbers: I had expected scores like for instance -1,3549 instead of -1 for the slopes. Is this just my ignorance, or?
Thanks,
Sylvana

The asterisks are missing values.

Please send your input, data, output, saved data file, and license number to support@statmodel.com.

Weekend has started in Europe, so I'll send you the files on Monday. Thanks.

Hello, I just solved the problem myself. Now I have three decimals for the intercepts and slopes of each subject.
Thanks!
